Telstra first to sell Galaxy Nexus

Telstra beats out Vodafone and Optus as the first telco to offer customers the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, on sale online and in flagship city stores now.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone to adopt Google’s updated  Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system. The world’s first Android 4.0 smartphone features new facial recognition technology that enables owners to unlock their phones by just looking at it.

It also has a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display screen, and features a redesigned operating system with a smoother user interface, resizable widgets and multitasking capabilities.

“Samsung is delighted to introduce a new addition in the highly successful GALAXY family to Australian consumers,” said Tyler Mcee, vice president of telecommunications at Samsung Electronics Australia. “The Galaxy Nexus is the first Australian handset to feature Android 4.0, bringing an entirely new look and feel to the popular operating system.”

The handset will be available for $10 a month on the $59 Freedom Connect plan over 24 months with $550 worth of calls, unlimited texts and 1.5GB of data, or $0 upfront on the $79 Freedom Connect plan including $800 worth of calls and 2GB of data.
